Like most website operators, WP.Style collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. WP.Style’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how WP.Style’s visitors use its website.
The site can use Google Analytics or a similar service that records visitor activity on the site. This information is used to analyze user behavior on our website in order to improve the usability and quality of the site.
WP.Style logs all search queries and this logs include the user ID if the user is logged in to WP.Style. We use this information to provide better service for our users and do not share this information with third parties.

Cloudflare is used to help us optimize and protect this site. CloudFlare acts as web traffic proxy between you and our web server, also it’s used to cache our static resources.
Web traffic is sent firstly to Cloudflare and then on to our web server to ensure bots are blocked and legitimate requests are allowed. Cloudflare logs a visitors’ IP address, system configuration information, and other information about traffic, which helps it to block attacks from bots and filter out potentially bad traffic. These logs are stored directly with Cloudflare and not on our server.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to WP.Style website choose to interact with WP.Style in ways that require WP.Style to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that WP.Style gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our User Reviews section or Comments Section to provide a username and email address. All user’s content, such as comments, posts, reviews and ratings, as well as a user name or nickname, avatar and the website address, specified by the user or assigned to his/her email address, are considered to be non-confidential. Using the website services that require this information, the user expresses his voluntary consent to the publication of this information on the website. The email address is not published and is considered confidential. In each case, WP.Style collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with WP.Style.
WP.Style does not disclose confidential information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
WP.Style may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, WP.Style may reveal how many hits a particular product got, or say which products or services are most popular based on ratings/reviews and links usage statistic. However, WP.Style does not disclose confidential information other than as described below.
